Dog Credited With Saving Swimmers From Dangerous Rip Currents in Ventura

Two swimmers at a Ventura beach were rescued Thursday from dangerous rip currents -- not by a lifeguard -- but by a dog.

The dog's owners said the 3-year-old Bernese mountain dog ran into the ocean after a couple started screaming for help.
